Amazon is planning to produce talking drones. They already got a development patent04 September 2017
The Amazon Company filed a patent application for developing drones that can warn people about the forced landing or clarify the landing point. The US Patent and Trademark Office has approved the new product. This was reported by The Drive.
According to the application, this famous company plans to produce drones that will be able to communicate with the owners: request additional information, warn about unplanned situations and answer questions. New feature will allow customers to cancel a purchase order with a voice command or change the drone landing point.
Talking drones will also be able to ask the client to confirm their identity before they can access the package. This is a useful feature, especially when sending valuable items.
The company also took drone delivery accidents into account. The device will alert the client and company representatives about the accident. Farther more, the drone will even tell you what to do in such situations.
In fact, Amazon stated that they do not guarantee a 100% safe delivery by drones, but will do everything possible to make the service as convenient and high quality as possible.
Obtaining a patent does not mean that the company already started developing a talking drone. However, the idea is quite useful and Amazon will most likely make it come to life.
